HC Deb 18 June 1901 vol 95 c725
MR. ARCHDALE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he can state who it was appointed Mr. Hickson resident magistrate, and what were his qualifications for the appointment.


Perhaps I may be permitted to reply to this question. Mr. Hickson was appointed, temporarily, as resident magistrate in September, 1888, and a year later he was placed on the permanent staff He is a barrister, and had served for twenty-one years as an officer of the constabulary prior to his appointment to the resident magistracy. The appointment was made by the Lord Lieutenant of the day, Lord Londonderry.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this Gentleman recommended boycotting about ten days ago?

[No answer was returned.]
